When it comes to fantasy worlds, few come as close as Skyrim to feeling so incredibly immersive. But it’s been out for a while, and we want more.
And what a fun way to push past the game’s limits than by exploring something totally new?
And so I’ve created a list really cool anime mods that don’t fit with the Skyrim theme at all… but create a world-class experience like no other.
Bear in mind that most of these mods are meant to be used in regular Skyrim, though. You can find some of them to be adapted for SSE, but most were made to work in the original game.
In any case, these anime mods will change the way you look at Skyrim and raise the question “what the hell is that thing doing over there?” on more than one occasion.
15. Gundam 00 Raiser Sword
This mod might have some of the worst textures that you’ll ever come across in the Skyrim modding community, but it adds the Raiser Sword of the Gundam 00 to the game.
Don’t you worry, my friend, the sword itself is not the same size as the one you see in the anime. It’s scaled-down so the Dragonborn can use it.
Which is actually even cooler.
That does raise the question of whether someone will make a mod to pilot a Gundam in Skyrim.
I’m pretty sure that would be overly complicated, but if anyone could do it, that would be pretty cool.
14. Gurren Lagann Solitude Shield
I’ll be completely honest with you: Gurren Lagann is the only anime on this list that I haven’t watched.
But I have heard good things about it, so I’m adding one GL mod to my list. To please the hardcore fans or anyone who knows the universe.
Besides, this mod only changes the design of the Solitude shield and replaces it with the Gurren Lagann logo.
I don’t think you need to know the series to understand what this mod is all about. It looks cool, though.
I might have to go watch it now…
13. Fire Alchemist Gloves (Fullmetal Alchemist)
You might be the Dragonborn, but it’s time for you learn the laws of equivalent exchange.
And maybe to wear the gloves of the legendary Roy Mustang.
They come with a fantastic 150% cost reduction to your destruction spells, which makes them some of the most reliable companions that an alch- I mean, that a mage could have.
You can find these at the Skyforge after installing this mod.
12. Pokémon in Skyrim
I mean, this mod is absolutely terrible. I think that’s what makes me love it so much.
It ‘adds’ Pokémon to the game, but in reality it only adds a spell that lets you capture creatures and retextures some of the animals to make them look like Pokémon.
When I say that it “makes them look like Pokémon”, I mean that it adds a crappy texture on top of existing Skyrim creatures. Which is awesome for a whole different set of reasons.
You can count on two things.
The first is that this mod is absolutely terrible.
The second one is that you have to download it!
It’s really surprisingly entertaining and I know you won’t regret. Well, you actually may regret it indeed, but you’ll have some fun nonetheless!
11. Fairy Tail Follower and Race Overhaul
Dragon Slayer races aplenty, Fairy Tail followers, and a cool bunch of new NPCs to enjoy.
This mod combines the Skyrim ambiance with Fairy Tail.
If you liked the series, you won’t necessarily like this mod (oddly enough).
But hey, in a world that seems to lack a lot of extra Fairy Tail goodies, this is as good as we’re going to get. Enjoy it!
10. Dragon Ball Z Saiyan Race
Have you ever wanted to play Skyrim as a Saiyan?
If you did, I don’t know what you were smoking. But there’s a mod to suit your needs.
The Dragon Ball Z Saiyan Race mod is super simple: it adds a new race that aims to mimic the Saiyans that we see in the anime series.
You’ll even get the ability to become a Super Saiyan yourself, so make good use of your newfound powers!
9. Sharingan Powers
If you watched Naruto in its entirety, you’re going to love this mod and recognize every single power that comes with it.
In fact, if you’re like me, you’re going to feel like a kid at Christmas the first time you awaken your Amaterasu.
Sharingan Powers adds a bunch of Sharingan effects to the game, which range from Kakashi’s powers to those of Itachi.
It’s one of the best Naruto mods out there, as well as one of the best anime mods in the Nexus.
It’s very well done, but it does require the Dragonborn DLC to work.
Are you looking to bolster your defensive arsenal, but don’t feel like using a shield? Not to worry.
You can now summon the Ribgace ability from the Amaterasu as if you were Sasuke (or Itachi) yourself.
Why protect yourself, when you can have Susanoo do it for you?
Don’t get too excited, though. This mod doesn’t add the entire Susanoo to the game.
It does allow you to buy the spell tomes for the Ribcage defensive ability, but that’s it.
Why play as an Argonian or as an Imperial when you can instead play as Saitama himself?
You won’t have to follow his strict training routine to get the best of him, so don’t worry.
Simply create your Saitama character and watch the Dragonborn become the world’s strongest but lesser-known hero: One Punch Man.
I know what you’re thinking, and the answer is yes.
He does kill enemies with one punch. What else did you expect?
6. Vasto Lorde
Bleach might have become an absolute disaster in its last handful of episodes, but we cannot deny that Ichigo is still one of the coolest characters to grace the anime world.
You could argue that he becomes a bit of a pansy as the show goes on, but there’s absolutely no denying that his Vasto Lorde form is as cool as its name sounds.
This is his second Hollow form, as you’ll probably know if you’ve watched the anime. Just be warned that your game will crash if you try to download this mod and install it in a save where your character is already transformed.
Best to try this out on a new save first, or at least have a backup save ready to go.
5. Zangetsu (All Forms)
Alright, there’s a reason why this mod takes a spot further up.
This allows you to play as all forms of Zangetsu.
It comes with all four forms, and the swords are as strong as Dwarven to Daedric (you can upgrade them as you see fit too).
If you asked me to recommend one Bleach mod for Skyrim, this would be it.
There are better Naruto mods, but this is as good as Bleach mods get. Give it a go.
4. Naruto Ultimate Overhaul
New weapons, new Naruto-inspired spells, new clothing items, new pieces of armor, and much more.
This mod truly converts the entire Skyrim world into a Naruto-themed environment that’s going to please even the most hardcore Naruto fans.
If you wish to create a weird hybrid between Skyrim and one of the world’s most popular ninja shows, then this is the mod for you.
3. Dragon Ball Z Overhaul Project
Well this far surpassed my expectations.
It allows you to use many of Dragon Ball’s most iconic abilities, but that’s not all.
The mod also replaces a bunch of the game’s basic sounds with those you hear in the anime, including the fantastic punching sounds we’ve all grown to love!
All of the powers that you can use with this mod come with the series’ voiceovers, so be ready to scream like Goku whenever you turn into a Super Saiyan.
Yes, it is as good as it sounds.
2. The Uchiha Clan
Nord, Orc, Redguard, UCHIHA.
You can download this mod to create an Uchiha-race character, which comes with the ability to use the Uchiha Sharingan and many of the series’ most iconic abilities.
Get this mod together with the Naruto Ultimate Overhaul if you’re looking for the wildest Naruto experience in Elder Scrolls.
1. Death Note
This has to be the best anime mod that I managed to find.
It’s an exact recreation of the Death Note in Skyrim, which means that you’ll be able to write down anyone’s name and have them die one of four horrible deaths.
Programming this mod was probably a true pain in the ass. But it was completely worth it.
Now you can kill anyone in the game without lifting a finger – including characters that you’ve downloaded, too!
